THIS GAME RULES!

YAY, dead sapce, love this game.

Awesome review!

As much as i love this game. i gotta agree with Yahtzee on this one.... like always xD

Ohhh I can save some money If I installed all those other games.

"displaying themselves like mutilated peacocks" lol

I actually didn't find anything particularly funny about this review.
Maybe I just need to watch it twice...

"Like fighting in a tumble dryer with a Shoggoth."

Best line of the review!

Hah! Fantastic as always!
Really loved the slowing time part haha!

nice work

aaa, Yahtzee, admit it, u love this game:Pmany people sayd this game will be a pice of...... before it eaven got out, but now lock at it, it cool.

Oh wow! An original game concept about deep space and zero-gravity! ...Wait, it's another Aliens rip-off. Sigh.

Spot on about characterization. I'm not going to sympathize with someone just because I'm told to.

Dead Space is indeed scary until you realise you can cut of ALL their limbs off. And the fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me really kicks in when they expect you to fall for the vacantly dead creature. It was fun, but the moment I got my hands on fallout 3 I forgot I even had it installed. The only scary thing about the game is indeed the soundtrack, it's the only thing that keeps chills running down your spine somewhat. Awesome review yahtzee, hit the bullseye.

Great as normal seems abit to much like doom3 only more dull.

Nice. Short, but enjoyable as always.

REVIEW FABLE 2 ALREADY

Damn, I was hoping for a Fable 2 review. Oh well this review was still good although not great. I hope we get a Fable 2 review next week and if we don't then Yahtzee better have a bloody good reason.

...I thought it was good. Not that scary, but good.

Thank you for ripping on the crappy, dingy space station cliche. I always wonder why people who rip on WWII games will agree to buy 12 sci-fi space station tour games every year.

W00t

... sorry, among the one word replies i just couldn't resist... bollocks

I think he was a little OTT with this one, the game is good, the story sucks a fat one granted but its a survival horror/action game, its going to suck, you just ignore the story and tear some aliens to bits.
But hes is rather spot on, im hoping when he said still hurt on silent hill, he meant he went ott on the next survival horror game he found

*Shrugs* funny though

Naff music intro.
Good review, another one to the 'buy only on Steam at $4.99' pile.

However...

We didn't say Evil Genius was a crime simulator, we said that it was the closest thing to creating that game that already existed. You could, of course, build one....

:P to Mr. Grumpy.

Ok ppl... if you think it's a rip off why don't YOU come up with anything better?? I stil think it was a very good game and I couldn't care less if Yahtzee said it was lame - I stil liked it...

And still - it was a pretty good review this week - I wanted to see what Yahtzee had to say about the game and I did - that's what makes me happy :)

ok now I'm sure of it... I must get this game :P great review! and I have to say I was expecting a good story out of this one... oh well, he did say its fun. Although repetitive.

*sniff* I feel so sorry for that poor brick.

ZP never fails to get me laughing.

haahah a college mate was hammering on at me today to buy this game and I thought it looked shite. I played Doom3 and Prey. Must admited I absolutely hated Prey but Doom3 was ace. Rip offs are the suck.

Long story short, I'm definitely not buying this game.

Gets it pretty much pegged, I had the same problem with Isaac, I really WANTED to sypathize with him, but he's nothing and meaningless.

I am also still hung up on Silent Hill, nothing is scary after Pyramid Head at 2:00am.

I agree a lot about the lack of characterisation. Some games can accomplish the mute hero quite well, like Half-Life. But Half-Life is more about what goes on around him, not Gordon himself. There were many sections in Dead Space where I thought my character should be having some kind of reaction, but he seems to take all the shambling horrors, and mutilations of people very well.

One thing I do have to say to the game's credit is that it gives a very visceral feeling to the melee attacks. Unlike RE4, where Leon acts like a stuntman for a martial arts movie, Clarke just flails his arms heavily in an effort to snap some limbs off. No dexterity, no finesse. And seeing as a great many games are taking a martial arts approach to melee, it's refreshing to see someone not very good at it.

Nice review. Kinda expected that from Dead Space.

Good review but I was kind of dissapointed to see Dead Space as this weeks game. I would much rather it had been Far Cry 2 or Fable 2.

*Shrugs* funny though

I can't believe I'm posting in a ZP thread, but I just have to point out that you can't excuse a bad element in a game, because it's associated with the genre. It's like saying any Resident Evil title is forgiven for bad camera angles, because it's something the series is known for.

i loooove this game so much right now. But as always, Great review Y.

Wow he was really mad in this one. The review was good, but I think Im gonna buy this game anyway. Heard so much god stuff about it from others, and I haven't played system shock before.

For once I don't agree with Yahtzee. Oh well, it was fun to watch anyway.
